1.Why are you atheist ?
I am an Atheist because after a long, hard research about religions and the Christianity I grew up with, I find the bible to make no sense, I find christians who speak for their God instead of allowing their God to speak for himself if he truly exists, and I have not been provided a shred of evidence for an existence of a God.
2.How are you became atheist ?
Do you mean, “How did you become an atheist?” I didn’t “become” an atheist, it’s not like I just turned around and said, “I now no longer believe!” I have taken a long, hard look at religion, their claims, and questioned everything and seek evidence to back their claims.
3.Where are you from ?
I am born in California, USA. I now reside in Washington State.
4.How old are you ?
Thirty, going on thirty-one in May 15.
5.Do you believe in the afterlife (some atheist than I know believe to the afterlife) ? If no , can you explain why ?
I do not believe there is an afterlife, as there is no evidence to support such claim. I do not pretend to know what happens after we die, other than our body decays.
6.Did you read all the Bible ? If you read all the bible what biblical canon (catholic , orthodox , protestant etc...) ?
Yes, it was the King James Version. I hadn’t read all other versions of the bible.
7.Did you read all the Quran ? (Yes I know that for Muslims if you read a translation you don't read the Koran).
No I have not read the Koran.
8.Did you read an other religious text ? If yes what is it or what are they ?
No I hadn’t read any other text.
9.What are yours hobbies ?
10.Can you define the goal of the life ?
To me, the goal in life is what an individual being decides to make of it. There is no supreme purpose or meaning or goal, it’s just your own personal goal in your own life.
11.Sometimes do you think ? I will go in Hell if god does exist.
That is more complicated than that. Which god would that be? Every religions have their own concept of eternal punishments. I do not know if I were going to be punished in some eternal punishment by some God because there just is no evidence for it.
12.Sometimes do you think that God does exist maybe ?
No. I think that all gods are manmade. If you look at the depictions of the gods of all religions, they are too alike of their followers like their appearance and their human traits such as jealousy and anger.
13.What do you think about people who believe in monotheistic religions ?
What is there to think of? I believe they have a right to believe in any god they like just as long as they don’t murder or violate people.
14.What do you think about people who believe in polytheistic religions ?
Same answer as #13.
15.What do you think about people who believe in a religion where there are not god(s) ?
Like Buddhism or Shintoism you mean? I think that is fine. But if you think Atheism is a religion, then baldness is a hair color.
16.Do you have an interest about philosophy to have answers about the life ? Can you explain why ?
I do love philosophical books, it’s rather intriguing what people say about things they say. I do not look to them as absolute answer to life, but information they offer for me to research on.
17.Do you fear to dead ? (I speak in a metaphysical context and about your friends , family etc...).
Do you mean to ask, “Do you fear death?” I do not fear death. I don’t fear it because it’s just the way life is, we’re all going to die eventually. What I rather be focusing on is living my life. If I were to die in few minutes or 50 years in the future, I don’t mind.
18.Do you like your life ? If you like your life , why do you like your life. If you don't like your life I would like to know the reason.
No I don’t like my life, but I do accept that I am a poor man with a pitiful job and struggling to stay alive and have some place to live. I am however not going to whine or demand that I deserve better. I’m going to work on improving my life. I can accept what I have, but it doesn’t mean I must like it. I didn’t like the horrible things I’ve seen in my life, I did not like the choices I’ve made, I was miserable, depressed and even suicidal.
19.Do you dream to live in a world where there are not place for the religions ? If yes or no explain please.
Dreaming dreams is nice, but the reality is what we have to accept today. I don’t deny that I’ve dreamed a world where there is no religion, but I don’t close my eyes to the reality.
20.Do you think that politic is like religion ? Explain why this is not equal or not.
Not really, politics is not the same as religion whereas religion is more of worshiping some deity or something like Buddhism.
